Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. Do you see any lights on the front, anything on the display such as an error message or other indicator?

Did you mean to say the lights do not come on?Sorry your last reply is a bit unclear.

Sorry , yes the lights do not come on
Thanks for confirming, Mark. Unfortunately, the issues you are experiencing are symptomatic of an internal hardware defect, often a faulty power supply or main/control board, though there are many possible failure points. This issue could be a manufacturing defect, but is also often caused by a power event (shock/surge, prolonged over/under voltage condition, etc).This could also be the result of age related wear and tear; as a 2007 model , that type of failure wouldn’t be surprising. This unit has exceeded its service life many times over now. There is one step you can take here, both as a possible fix, as well as a diagnostic evaluation:1) Unplug the power cord from the outlet2) Wait at least 1 hour (60+ Minutes)3) Press and hold the power button (on the set, not the remote) for 60 seconds4) Keep holding power button while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after. When plugging back in, go directly to the wall outlet, bypassing any power strips or surge protectors. If this reset process does not work, it would unfortunately confirm an internal hardware failure. This is something that would require repairs to correct; though repairs simply aren't feasible. There are no parts available and labor alone far exceeds the value of the system. Repairs would average $250. For a system of this age, replacement will make more sense. You can get a brand new system with updated features and a fresh warranty for less than you'd spend on repairs. Depending how you’d like to proceed here, I can help with finding a repair shop, or recommending replacement options. Just let me know. Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,Nathan

Having tried your suggested solution it appears that the unit is u/s.
Thank you for your time and patience, the solution is now to purchase another unit even though this unit was hardly used.
Thank you once again
